Saracens 10 - 32 Leicester Tigers

Fly-half Freddie Burns contributed with 17 points as Leicester Tigers defeated Saracens in London on Saturday to make it to the final of the Anglo-Welsh cup.

Leicester Tigers' points in the first half came through tries from fullback George Worth and flanker Luke Hamilton in the seventh and 38th minute respectively while Burns added conversions on both the occasions and also scored a penalty to take the visitors to 17 points.

Scrum half Henry Taylor crossed over for Saracens in the 28th minute and that remained the only points for them in the first half as they trailed by 12 points heading into the second half.

Prop Ellis Genge and Burns extended Leicester Tigers' advantage in the second half with a try and a penalty in the 41st and the 55th minute as the lead increased to 20 points.

Even though fullback Matt Gallagher provided some respite for Saracens with a 57th minute touchdown, Burns ensured Leicester Tigers completed a 22 point victory with a converted try in the 67th minute. They will now lock horns with Exeter Chiefs in the final of the tournament.
